In this recent pubilcation in Cell Reports, the group of Andreas Ladurner demosntrate that the histone chaperone ANP32B is a regulator of macroH2A deposition. In a collaborative approach they developed a split-GFP-based assay for chromatin incorporation and used it to conduct a genome-wide mutagenesis screen in haploid human cells to identify proteins that regulate macroH2A dynamics.
In their recent publication in Nature Communications, the research group of Maria Colomé-Tatché describes the algorithm called epiAneufinder. It exploits the read count information from scATAC-seq data to extract genome-wide copy number alterations for individual cells.
Charlotte Blessing, former PhD student in the group of Prof. Andreas Ladurner, has been awarded the Dr. Hildegard and Heinrich Fuchs Prize for the promotion of young medical professionals in 2023 at the Medical Faculty.
